Hailed as the most devastating film about slavery ever, but the extraordinarily detailed memoir itís based on shows the institution to be even more hideous than you can imagine.

Avery Brooks, Petronia Paley and John Saxon star in this powerful true account of racial injustice. Studio: Monterey Video (2005), DVD Rated: NR (Not Rated), English, Run Time: 117 minutes.
